Often times young adults require assessment and coaching in order to develop and hone the necessary life skills necessary for long-term independence and success. At The Crossroads uses the Casey Life Skills model as a guide to develop individualized life skills training programs for the clients.

Working through the life skills component of this program in turn helps the young adults to gain confidence and traction in working towards their life goals. Once a young adult develops a fully healthy set of life skills, independence is that much more attainable.

Based off of information from the Casey Life Skills assessment and clinical observation, young adults are evaluated on their proficiency with the following life skills listed below:

1.    Financial Management

2.    Goal Setting

3.    Employment

4.    Home Management
